Four Challenges, One Card!

What a fun day of creating I had today ~ I can't believe I finally inked up my Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set ~ I've had this sitting in my cupboard for months...today was the day...I was determined to use it and found my starting point with these fabulous challenges that I played along with... I started with Color Throwdown, loosely followed the sketch from Sugar Pea Sketch 47, found inspiration at The Card Concept and because this is a birthday card for a friend, I jumped in at Seize The Birthday!  Join in the fun and come create along with everyone!!!



I used Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise on my Whisper White Panel ~ it's almost hard to see the white with all the stampin' & sponging that I did...but it's there!!!


As I said previously ~ I very loosely followed this sketch ~ love the sketches found on this site!

 My inspiration came from seeing so much going on in the photo, so I followed #5 ~ Free style Collage ~ lots of sponging as well as a lot going on Whisper White panel


Wow...and lots going on with all this...so onto my birthday card ~


~ thanks so much for popping by ~ I hope you enjoyed your time here ~ 
 ~ Have a wonderful day ~


If you live in Winnipeg or the vicinity and would like to host a party I would love to come and stamp with you and your friends!! Or, if space is an issue, come here and create with me at one of my many clubs or classes! Drop me a line for further info! I'd love to meet you! Enjoy your day!

TSOT#261 & STB

I've been having so much fun creating in my new small quarters ~ our second bedroom is working out quite nicely ~ I've gone from an 1800 sq foot studio to a regular size bedroom. It has a sofa bed (grandkids/guests sleepover bed), big screen TV and a lot of my toys nicely stored in the closet!  So it really isn't about how much you have, but how you make the most of what you have :-)

I love creating masculine cards...not an easy feat, but this sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday was absolutely perfect for my card.


although I don't have a sentiment on the face of my card ~ I did create this as a birthday card, so I'm hoping that the lovely gals at Seize The Birthday will accept this an an entry for their current challenge ~ do come and join in the fun with these fabulous challenge blogs


Onto my card ~ what do you think?
